    Hey this is Magnius here and in this document, I'm gonna list all the voicegroups in Fire Red as well as the instruments each voicegroup can play. But first, what are voicegroups? My definition would be a group of instruments stored in a particular value in a rom. Voicegroups are one of the biggest deciding factors in whether the midi you insert sounds good or not. For instance, if you insert a midi, but you notice one of the DirectSound tracks gets turned to GBSynth, this is probably because the instrument isn't in the particular voicegroup of the song you assembled. This could also be though, because of the GBA's music limits, which are explained in Part 2 of my Music Hacking document. Luckily for you you can change the voicegroup before assembling, but what instruments can each particular voicegroup play? That's what I'm mostly gonna cover in this document. After much research I've produced an accurate list of instruments that each voicegroup can play and if an instrument isn't in that particular voicegroup, it probably won't play correctly.

    However, before we move onto that, a little information on how some tracks are used on the GBA. First off, know that every track after 80 is mostly going to transfer into GBSynth, when assembled into Sappy. Channel 81, the sawtooth, is commonly used as the bass instrument in most GBA tracks, although sometimes DirectSound basses can be used if the voicegroup supports it. GBSynth tracks can be used in any track, so if I forget to list them in one voicegroup, that doesn't mean you can't use them. Second of all, I won't be covering what particular drums each voicegroup supports. Also a note to add about track 62 "SynthBrass1" though it says SynthBrass, this track is generally used to make a heavy low guitar sound.

    So yeah, that was the list. Next I'm gonna cover choosing the right voicegroup for your song.

    Choosing the Right Voicegroup

    When the choosing the voicegroup you want to use, you should generally pick a voicegroup that has a lot of the same instruments that are in your midi. For instance, if your midi uses strings, trumpets, but also guitars, you want to find a voicegroup that has all of those. If you find a voicegroup with most of the same instruments, you can either try your luck or change some of the instruments in that midi, so that they're all in that particular voicegroup. If a particular instrument isn't in any voicegroup, it will probably have to be substituted for some other instrument.

    But I'm confused, my tracks have different numbers than the ones used on the GBA...

    If you have standard midi software, the track numbers are probably going to be different than what's used on the GBA. I don't know if this'll work for your particular midi program but to get the GBA track number, I take the general midi track number and subtract it by one. So say my general midi program has 57 for the track number of the trumpet, it would be track number 56 in the Pokemon games. Your midi program might also have different names for instruments than mine, but it's generally gonna be in the same order. Hopes this helps you guys gain an understanding.

    And yeah, that's the tutorial guys... Hoped it help you out.

          For a hacker like me, who wants to learn music hacking ,that's really useful
          the only critism: Maybe you should make a spoiler or a code, so ppl don't have to scroll down everytime when they want to post
          I also have a question: Do you know how to change the instruments in a voicegroup per hex?

          It's not necessary because you listed the voicegroup instruments, but sometimes adjusting the playing instruments to a voicegroup just sounds crappy -.-

            The gba supports diffrent soun modes and things. These are just what FR uses, theres more than these though.

            Magnius: I want to know, when you are decoding the sounds, how would you know, which instrument is which? There are a bunch of them, and you can't really tell each by the sound, or Do you use a program, like anvil studio?

              Well yeah, that's the only way I know of of actually changing the instruments in a midi, to use a program. That way you can change the instruments and you'll be able to tell most instruments regardless of what kind of midi software your computer has.

                I understand it all now. The only problem is vista not assembling the songs. If i could do that then this would be pretty simple. Good job Magnius for another tutorial!

                  Wrong.

                  Vista does assemble songs properly. Though, you need to restart Sappy after 3 assemblies. And if you already didn't do so, consider upgrading your copy of Vista to Service Pack 1, that may help.

                  Do all these instruments come with Sappy?
                  Cause I am using MAGIX.

                    Good job, Magnius.

                    BTW percussion (drums and every beat-making instruments except the noise) owns instrument 0, and some of the voicegroups, particularly those used in R/S/E music, have different set of percussion than in those used in FR/LG music.

                      Another note is, 35 - Fretless Bass, atleast for me won't play in Sappy, however, it WILL still play in game, so even if you don't hear it in Sappy, it'll still work. Same is true for track 33 - Electric Bass too.

                        Thanks for this, should really help me out.
                        Sometimes in the game, I can hear static in with the custom music, although not in sappy. Is this
                        because I have used the wrong voice group?

                          Good, this is very helpful. Thanx Magnius! My sappy doesn't work anyway but i'm trying to fix it (crashes when click "play" and "assemble that ugly thing"). Some day I'll be able to make it work.

                          P.d: Maybe I'm missing some drivers, despite that I downloaded every .dll it was telling at each error.

                                  Made a few updates to the list. Might also add each voicegroups specific wave instruments. I've discovered more instruments in some voicesets, so I've also added those.

                                      hey is it possible to make a custom voice group because my midi contains all the instruments but some voice groups doesn't contain for example in the offset 0x49C0F4 it contains
                                      17 - Percussive Organ
                                      24 - Acoustic Guitar Nylon
                                      45 - Pizzicato Strings
                                      48 - Strings
                                      60 - French Horn
                                      73 - Flute
                                      80 - Square
                                      81 - Sawtooth

                                      These are helpful but with sappy mod 15 you can edit voicegroups so you dont need to change your instruments.

                                          This is very great but... look, I don't hear these: (trust me, I know what I hear)

                                          Also, one of the synth bases is not a synth base (the one in Little Root Town;Pokemon Center in FireRed)

                                          Some instruments are never used. A fellow hacker and I discovered that DPPt has every single Gen III soundtrack. This means that the Littleroot Town music is in there, too. I don't think that I've ever heard it, though.
